Parents are trying to multi-task several large roles that have been plopped into their laps because of the coronavirus pandemic — and it’s difficult. Many parents are feeling overwhelmed.
We are learning our children’s subjects so that we can teach them. We’re making sure they complete their assignments, log into their Google classroom, download their assignments, turn in their assignments, and connect with their teachers via Zoom or Google Meet. Some of us are doing all of this while taking phone and video conferences ourselves.
